Eight months filled with homework, adventures, and fast food runs: as this school year ends, it is time to discuss the best and worst of the Snow College 2016-2017 year.
Not all may agree, but there weren’t many things that went horribly wrong this past school year. Many Snow College students were asked what they thought was the “worst” of this year. Here are some of their thoughts:
The amount of snow that Ephraim and surrounding cities got seemed to be awfully high this past winter. The first few days of the Spring Semester were filled with blizzard-like weather. The school even sent out an email saying that for the safety of the students, some classes were canceled. However, snow isn’t all that bad. With that snow, many students made the best of it by going out and having fun.
The change in Wi-Fi was a great idea to begin with, but ended up not running so smoothly for many students. Students were informed that there would be a change to the Wi-Fi, but what they were not told was how big of a hassle it was going to be to get some devices connected to the Wi-Fi. The transfer over to Secure Badger was rough, but the people in the on-campus Information Technology department handled it very well. Many students that week learned where the IT room was, and how helpful the people are who work there.
Sasha Border was asked to give her thoughts on the Wi-Fi switch over. She said, “It’s been a little annoying because it is not very consistent. My devices are having issues staying connected with the new Wi-Fi. The IT people who I have visited many times since the switch were incredibly helpful though!”
There were many good things that happened this year, and students highlighted these next two things as some of the best.
Changes are happening to the future games hosted by Snow College. This past year Snow was lucky enough to get stadium lights set up on the football field. This is the first time in Snow College history that there are lights on the field. In the past, games played on the field have had to be held during the daytime. Students who are returning for the fall semester should make sure to go and support the football team, and other teams that play on the field and take advantage of the new lighting system.
K.C. Lowry a member of the football team was asked about the new football lights and he said, “I think it’s great! I prefer to play at night, and I know that a lot of people prefer to watch at night. The football team and other sports teams that play on the field are all super stoked about having the lights put up and able to use”.
Any student who was here for fall semester knows that Homecoming was a week filled with fun activities held by the school. Homecoming week is a great way to celebrate the beginning of the school year, and to show school spirit. There was different things to do every single day during that week, James the Mormon had a block party concert that could be heard streets away. Snow College’s own musically talented students put on an amazing show while hot chocolate and cider were served.
There are many more activities and memories that didn’t get added in this list, but that doesn’t mean that they weren’t there. College is something that is stressful, and comes with good and bad things. The people who work hard to make things better for the students here at Snow should be appreciated for all their hard work. Take some time and reflect on this past year. Find what was good and bad individually. Make a goal to make the “worst” better next year.
The Snowdrift thanks students, and administration for giving events, opinions, sports, and many more things to fill the pages with.
